A clinical medical herbalist, Mary Bove, ND, had a practice in family medicine in Brattleboro, Vermont for over 20 years, where she assisted at the birth of a whole generation of children. Once a full-time faculty member at Bastyr University, Dr. Bove chaired the departments of Botanical Medicine and Naturopathic Midwifery. She is the author of An Encyclopedia of Natural Healing for Children and Infants, and co-author of Herbs for Women's Health.
She lectures and teaches internationally on the topics of naturopathic medicine, botanical medicine, natural pregnancy, childbirth, pediatrics, traditional food medicine and mind-body healing.
Since starting her herbal journey at age 18, Mary has held firm to three tenets: “Walk your talk, believe in the plants and practice herbalism every day in your life.”
